I love the diversity and depth of the characters. The intro of Six was my favorite storyline, followed by the ex-Guild members. I love how it logically showed how people that are allies can be on opposite sides. Only criticism would be the ending seemed a bit rushed, and villain actions seemed lucky and stupid at the end.
Love Rath, love the book
Rath's new understanding
Its hard to love a serial killer but time after time you must with Rath!!!
Rath's Rebellion is the 2nd installment of Piers Platt's 2nd trilogy of the Janus Group. Following his trial, Rath is broken out of prison by the mystery cabal encounter previously. Rath now finds himself involved in a revolutionary group, equipped with the super weapon Paison has previously stolen for them with an intent of bringing down the Federacy. At the same, Dazi is moving in on busting the Neopuritans, while the Neopuritan Senator Fos is busy inserting into himself deeper into Senate double dealing. Beauceron and his new girlfriend are slowing sleuthing their way into the action from a different direction.
The sci-fi elements are all in line with previous volumes. The plot is a bit more complex with more independent players with varying objectives (compared to the 1st trilogy); the characters are largely one dimensional, crudely rendered, and somewhat transparent. Rath continues in his quest for absolution, but can also be annoying gullible.
The narration continues to be well done with an excellent range and distinction of voices for both genders. The pace makes for an easy, fast listen.
I have enjoyed this series however this book was liberal propaganda with a very little thought and it was applied to some characters who are supposed to be intelligent. Poor story, pathetic economics this book was claptrap ridiculousness.
